Object Matrix and Empress Media Asset Management, LLC (Empress) have launched a joint solution for integrated media asset management, digital content governance, and permanent media storage.
The integrated solution includes the widely used eMAM Media Asset Management system from Empress Media with MatrixStore, the award-winning, media-focused hybrid cloud object storage solution from Object Matrix. The combination of eMAM and MatrixStore ensures a unified workflow within a single cloud interface. Scalability is a key feature, thanks to the flexibility and easy integration of both solutions.
“Media companies are looking for new ways to monetise their archived content and, for that, content needs to be discoverable and workflows built according to their unique needs.”
Commented Nick Pearce-Tomenius, Sales and Marketing Director, Object Matrix.
“Integrating with flexible MAM solutions makes it much easier for our customers to build the workflow that is right for their business needs.”
David Miller, COO, Empress, added:
“Object Matrix is a great option for our customers as a combined solution that is future proof, compatible with the cloud, scalable, and built with features and performance needed for broadcast media and other organizations.”
MatrixStore from Object Matrix enables media companies to better organise and exploit their archives. It ensures stored content is secure and protected, whilst enabling easy and instant access to content at all times. Automated and integrated business continuity functionality means users can manage content, even in the case of an outage.
eMAM from Empress is a media asset management system offering customers a feature-rich online digital library with best-of-breed integrations for a complete workflow process, including archive and storage management, production asset management, review and approval, sharing and publishing, and digital delivery.
The integrated solution has undergone collaborative testing involving both companies, ensuring it can provide a seamless workflow from ingest to archive, and beyond. Qualified combined system integrators promote the system worldwide in local markets.
